Proverbs 28

Prayer:

 Heavenly Father,
Thank you for your mercy…You are the creator of the heavens and of the earth.  You tell the sun when to rise and when to set.  You change the seasons and the times.  You move the heart of kings.  Lord give us a favor.  Lord help us not to fall. You Lord are our strength and our song; you have become our salvation. With shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: Father your right hand has done mighty things! Your right hand is lifted high; the LORD’s right hand has done mighty things!” We will live and proclaim the mighty things you Lord have done.  You chasten us severely but you have not given us over to death.  Father help us to do your will, obey quickly , repent so that we turn from our wicked ways and forgive from a loving heart. The wicked man flees though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion. Create in us a bold and stout heart over those things you deem by your word.  When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers, but a man of understanding and knowledge maintains order.  Let us be faithful to pray and humble our selves so that you hear our prayer and heal our land so that we may be people of understanding  and knowledge so that we maintain godly order.   Let us not be like those who oppresses the poor who are  like a driving rain that leaves no crops. Let us keep your law resist the wicked and not praise them. Father show us your ways Lord, let us not do as evil men who do not understand justice, but let us be those who seek you Lord and understand it fully. Help and guide your daughters to understand it is better a poor woman whose walk is blameless  than a rich woman whose ways are perverse. Create in us a pure heart and right spirit so that we may walk according to your ways.  Thank you Father for your unfailing love and faithfulness that endures all things.  Thank you for guarding us in the darkest of times. Thank you for the gift of Jesus. Strength us through your holy spirit. We commit all our plans to you Lord so that we will succeed.  In Jesus name we pray… Amen!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,
Jennifer Pettiford
